Anne Braun is a young German Gentile woman with a crush on Judaism. She owns a bookstore in Munich specializing in Jewish literature, volunteers in a Jewish retirement home, and supports the Jewish author Schlomo Wisniewski.
During World War II, Anne’s grandparents amassed their wealth by trading art, antiques, and valuables sold cheaply by Jews fleeing Nazis. Anne’s parents took over the family business without questioning the origin of their inherited wealth.
Anne feels it is her duty to work off her family’s bad karma, and how better to do that than to marry a Jewish man.
